1 min read

In response to recent tragedies, the Harvard Chaplains Office will hold a “Vigil of Prayer and Remembrance” on Wednesday (Feb. 12) at  7 p.m. in the Memorial Church.

The service will consist of inspirational readings, song, and reflective silence.  Participants will include President Drew Faust, interim College Dean Donald Pfister, and Leverett Co-Masters Howard and Ann Georgi.

The vigil will gather members of the Harvard community together to mark this weekend of loss, both spiritually and literally, wrote the Rev. Jonathan Walton in a statement released today.

Memorial boards will be located just off the sanctuary of the Memorial Church.  At the conclusion of the vigil, community members are encouraged to pen their prayers, positive thoughts, poems, and reflections.  The memorial boards will remain in place for the community for the remainder of the month.
